Alaska Hat Faded Colourwork Class

Alaska Hat Faded Colourwork Class


Melissa Caines

Class Description:

Create the northern lights and an Alaska treeline using pastel shades of Koigu KPM paired with Quince and Co. Finch. In this class you will learn two-handed colourwork and how to fade the northern lights backdrop by blending 7 colours of Koigu KPM.

This is an intermediate class taught over zoom. Unlike in-person instruction, zoom classes require pre-homework prep by students. Before each class, the instructor will send you videos on techniques to review. In the following class, you will practice these techniques together with the teacher. For the best learning experience, please set up a camera that can be directed at your hands as you knit.

The zoom link will be emailed to all students prior to the first class. Please read Tips for Navigating Online Classes to prepare for and have the best possible experience with our virtual zoom courses.
